We got lucky on a Saturday evening and got a table without booking. The staff were really good and made room for us but I recommend you book in advance. The food was really good, we had a kids cheeseburger, 5-a-day burger and the pork belly. Portion sizes were spot-on, waiting time was good even though the place was packed and the service was very good. I think they also do take-outs. Great place.

Was after a light lunch for two so we ordered wedges to share. Waited well over 30 minutes for our meal and in that time a table of six sitting next us ordered their food after us and yet managed to get all meals delivered before our one bowl of wedges arrived. When they finally came out, bacon was still pink all over and barely cooked, salsa was weirdly sweet, the only redeemer to the meal was large amount of cheese that had been mixed through the wedges.

We are very sorry to hear that you waited such a long time for your order and that the wedges were obviously not cooked correctly. Thank you for your feedback.

Looking for someplace different to have a memorable time over some of the most amazing food around - I know, I travel a lot.
Try the ribs - it's all in the sauce - so easy to eat you could inhale them.
A great place to come back and visit.

A road trip to New Plymouth, & looking for a dinner or tea as they say. A wide choice of venues in New Plymouth,Corner House we were told had a good food. So in we went. It reminded me of a dinner pub, with booths and long benches and tables, lots of TV screens. Just what you need if you like sport or need to watch a game.

We were assisted by friendly gent, all smiles and typical kiwi as. My wife tried the Montieths Summer Ale and was impressed. I had a Black Dog Chomp. The food was delicious and the vibe very feastive for a Sunday night . The service was good and the atmosphere was warm and vibrant. The writing on the walls had us in a couple of laughs , so good reading while you wait for your food. The sport was not too loud so one could have a conversation without shouting at each other. Good all round evening out.
